This may be the first time ever that I've thought literally every outfit in a g/b/u was bad or ugly.

The women all look gorgeous and delightfully understated, hair-and-makeup-wise, but...I swear, I was like "Daisy looks cu...what the hell is with those pants?!," then "that color on Rosamund's dress is so fun and cheerf...why is she wearing sheer hose and matching pumps like some sort of circa-'86 bridesmaid?!," and after that I was almost too exhausted to be thrilled that Kanye appears to be wearing a Victorian cameo as a necklace.

That said, Liv can feel free to mail me that bonkers sweater. I'll wear it with some pants. Because it's a shirt.

Maybe they all just have too much money, 'cause un-famous Parisian women on street style blogs are putting together awesomely quirky ensembles left and right.
